Rain barrels available in Haywood County

Written by 

Rain barrels made from recycled food-grade containers are available for purchase at the Haywood County Chamber of Commerce and the Haywood County Cooperative Extension Office. They can also be ordered through the Haywood Waterways Association. 

The barrels have bug screen and connections for a garden hose, overflow pipes or to connect multiple barrels together. During drought, the barrels provide a source of irrigation water, reducing strain on rivers and wells, and they capture stormwater to reduce runoff when it rains. The average barrel captures 650 gallons of stormwater annually and has a 30-year lifespan. 

$80.25 each, including tax. Contact Haywood Waterways, 828.476.4667 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
